Remember that lump I had in my neck?

It's benign.

I had an ultrasound scan today and I thought I'd have to wait to see my own GP who sent me for it to find out the results but the doctor told me when he was doing it. (I wonder if he'd have told me if it had been bad?) It turns out it's a benign thyroid tumour and I have a matching one on the other side too - although that's smaller.

I have to go and see my own GP but the doctor seemed to think that if it wasn't giving me any problems nothing would have to be done about it - which suits me fine. I'm much too busy to have an operation or anything!

Thanks, God!

What a relief! My "freckle" was nothing, too. So even though I didn't really suspect it was anything, I'm relieved it's not melanoma!

PLEASE..be careful. I had a benign thyroid tumor for some years and the MD monitored it. Then, I missed one biopsy and the next year the tumor was cancer. It can happen that fast. You may be too busy for op. now; but talk to your MD about screening for cancer. I don't wish to frighten you - but since I've been there I had to give a head's up. Be careful and God Bless.
